iOS 5 problem!

This topic has been archived. To keep discussions in the Skype Community relevant we archive topics that haven't seen activity in the past 6 months. Read more about about archiving
I've upgraded my iPad 2 to the latest official iOS version 5. Skype itself works okay, however there's a very annoying bug I have now: when the screen is off or any other application is active (Skype is running in the background) - there's no ringing alert in case of incoming call (neither video or usual one) and no pop-up appears. I've missed a bunch of calls today and it doesn't make me happy.
All settings were checked and compared to IPad 2 running iOS 4 - they are absolutely the same.

My Skype v. 3.5.118 (the latest one) does not work after my iPad 2 was upgraded to iOS 5. Hope Skype will quickly fix this

Thanks for the user E-K finding out the solution.


Today, I updated to IOS5 and got the same issue.


However, I think I found the solution of the notification problem:


Settings - Notifications - Skype

- Notification(OFF)

- Alert Sytle(Alerts)

- Badge App Icon(ON)

- Sounds(ON)

- View in Lock Screen(ON)


To me, it works well. I've tested with skype for pc and see the popup notification showing "Calll from OOO."


I don't fully understand new IOS5 notifications yet, but hope this helps.

Perfect... the key to it was having Notification Centre switched to "OFF" for some unknown reason.....


Skype now rings when ipad is "off"

I think i have the same problem on my iPhone 4, iOS5 - after o switch from skype to other apps, in some time it looks like skype just pulled from memory and if i switch back to skype, it runs from the start, by loginning, that confirms, that it wasnt running.

I've just did a trick with the notification setting of skype, will see. But i think its problem with the memory allocation in iOS5.

Hope skype can correct this
